I am just reading the book of Proverbs today and I landed in chapter 20 verse 24. It says in the NLT version that the Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way??
Having been given by God the brain to think, sometimes we over analyze our life route and begin to question or worst doubt God because we don’t like where we are in life. Yet, if our lives has been submitted to Jesus Christ, He becomes our Lord and we give Him permission to direct our lives. In that permission though we being human sometimes or most of the times want Him to line up to what we think is best for us oblivious of the fact that God is in our present as much as He is in our future.
If we take a look at where we are, we sometimes scratch our head until all the dundruff fall off because for most of it, we don’t know why we are in here and there and it appears to be too nonsense and too far off from how we want our lives to be.
But if He is a good Lord and He is, then His direction for us is for our good. It may seem rough today but the God who knows our future is aware of how it will take us to become like Christ if we yield in His leadership and trust in His leading.
Today, let us trust that the God whom we submitted our lives into is not just concern about us going to Heaven. He too is serious about us becoming the person whom the Father designed us to be and fulfilling His will while living here on earth.
Have a blessed Monday y’all🏃
